EPL: Ralf Rangnick to decide his successor at Manchester Utd

Incoming Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick, will be a key part of the decision-making process when it comes to appointing his successor at Old Trafford.

The Telegraph reports that Manchester United will give Rangnick a say over who succeeds him as permanent manager next year, while it is even possible that the German could land the job himself.

Man United have already agreed a deal with Rangnick to take over the reins on an interim basis for the next six months,

However, the former RB Leipzig boss will not be in the dugout for Man United’s Premier League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge as he is still waiting for a work permit.

Man United will also hand the 63-year-old a consultancy role once his tenure as manager is over, which will last until 2024.

Paris Saint-Germain head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, and Ajax manager, Erik ten Hag, are the two leading candidates for the role and Man United hope Rangnick will be in an ideal position to decide the perfect manager after working with the Red Devils players for six months and determining what is required.

Meanwhile, Man United are currently in the 9th position on the Premier League table with 17 points from 12 games ahead of their clash with Chelsea on Sunday evening.

They are 12 points behind league leaders, Chelsea.
